Following on from our previous successful talks, the Friends of Black Mountain are holding another midwinter talk this year.

Our speaker will be Kim Pullen, an expert on the invertebrates of the Canberra region and Black Mountain.

Invertebrates are intriguing, and eye-catching at times. Come along to learn more about them at this talk by entomologist Kim Pullen. About 2150 species of insects, arachnids, millipedes and velvet worms have been recorded on Black Mountain, although scientists studying them estimate that there are more than 5000 species of invertebrate in the reserve. Kim will introduce us to the diverse insect life on Black Mountain and its characteristics.
